Whites go to the back of the bus at MacArthur Medical Center
At the MacArthur Medical Center in Irving, Texas a white man was denied COVID monoclonal antibody treatments for the single reason that he happened to be white.
We know this is true because the individual, Harrison Hill Smith, posted a video of his experience, available at the link. Here is a transcript:
“So I’m not going to be able to get it today because I don’t qualify? What if I smoke or vape? What if I were black and Hispanic. Then I’d be able to qualify?” the white man, presumably Harrison Hill Smith, asks the healthcare worker in the video.
“Yup,” the healthcare worker, who’s black, replies.
“I’m being denied medical service because of my race?” Smith then asks again just to confirm.
“That’s the criteria,” the worker indifferently responds.
It also appears that the Texas Department of Health approves this discriminatory policy.
This story is actually only a sample of a policy that appears to be spreading nationwide, whereby health organizations are denying COVID monoclonal antibody treatment to whites while favoring minorities. For example, the article shows that a similar anti-white criteria is being followed by the Minnesota Department of Health. There, they claim these rules are “suggestions”, but they widen the number of favored minorities to also include Asians, native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and Alaska natives.
Whites need not apply.
While there is some data to suggest that some minority populations are at a greater risk from COVID, the data is very inconclusive and hardly justifies such a discriminatory policy. Moreover, to favor minorities while singling out whites for denial is a clear violation of every civil rights law passed since 1964.
Not that these facts matter. Since the first vaccines were available many government health agencies have been trying to impose such discrimination, first by putting whites at the bottom of the vaccine priority list. Now it appears these leftist government agencies want to deny healthcare to whites, merely because of their race.
The worst part of this is that there does not seem to be a significant reason for this denial. There does not appear to be a serious shortage of monoclonal antibody supplies. Instead it appears that hospitals nationwide would have ample supplies for all. Hospitals in Texas and Minnesota just like denying whites treatment.
Do you want increase race hatred and promote a race war? Do exactly what these government agencies are doing. Play favorites based solely on race.
In such a war, everyone will suffer, but I can promise you that in the end it will be the minorities who will suffer the most. Such policies guarantee that the gains made in civil rights in the past three-quarters of a century will soon be lost.

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space
, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
